Declan off and where he is steadfast in his resolve to keep going were very amusing In particular, I found myself having a good laugh at Declan s horror at being dragged to karaoke.Rules are for Breaking is a fun, light hearted read, but Imelda Evans also does theserious scenes very well without making them overwrought or super treacly.Oh, and I ll tell you now, there s not too much out there that s sexier than a man who does his own ironing Thank you, Imelda, for writing that scene.My rating 4 out of 5.Note I was provided with an advanced reader copy of this book by Destiny Romance, an

provides a tummy tingling escape for a few hours It is extremely well written with Imelda Evans certainly knowing how to set a scene Light hearted and funny, it had me enchanted from the very first page Taken from the author s website Imelda Evans is an Australian writer who likes books, baths and baking, coffee, cocktails and craft, family, friends and food and a good lie in the hammock when the alliteration fails her She writes contemporary novels about women s lives the dramas, the challenges, the joys and the occasional loaded gun and how they get through them with a sense of humour and a little help from their friends.Or, put another way, she writes fun fiction about fabulous women and the men they get mixed up with.I wish to thank both NetGalley and Penguin Books Australia

touch of tenderness Declan is almost a dream come true He is persistent to a fault but knows exactly what he wants and won t stop until he gets it He s patient and understanding and is willing to work hard to get what he wants What woman wouldn t want that package It s a nice light hearted romance that makes all the non believers think twice about love at first site and true love Worst Thing The
